Copper Harbor is a town that is a short 14 miles away from the cottages. In Copper Harbor you can find some very unique places that are a must see while you are in town!

  1. The Brick House- This is a microbrewery where you can find all of the finest craft beers in the area!

  2. The Haus- Authentic German food that you must try!

  3. The Bakery- Freshly baked goods are produced here every day.

  4. The General Store- Across the street from dining is where you will find an old fashioned general store that has a gas station as well.

  5. State Campground- Historical sightings where Indians once were.

Reviews

Schooolhouse Cottage
This unit is in a nice location - close to the lighthouse and lighthouse museum. The unit is a nice size, well kept, and comfortable for two people. It appears to be the largest cabin of the site. We would stay there again.

As good as it gets for under $200/night!!!
The mechanical is is perfect shape and nicely decorated with excellence. There is nothing that could be done to make this more comfortable. Clean, no bugs, screens in all four directions and lots of little fans. Hot water, WIFI and every imaginable kitchen gadget.

Nice location for exploring the Keeweenaw Peninsula
The Schoolhouse cottage is in a nice location in Eagle Harbor. Steps away from the light house, a view of the harbor and beach out the front window. The Eagle Harbor Inn / Restaurant is a short walk down the street. You are within 30 to 45 minutes from the attractions in the Keeweenaw. The cottage has a living room, bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom. It was clean and is nicely furnished.



FRESHWATER RESPONSE:
Philip, we are so happy that Schoolhouse Cottage fit your needs for your vacation.  We love being so close to the lighthouse.  We hope to see you again at one of our properties.

What a lovely place to stay, again!
Our 2017 stay was so pleasing that we repeated this year. Schoolhouse is excellent for two; well-equipped Kitchen with appliances, cooking implements and supplies, 1 minute walk to the Freshwater laundry and trash bins, Queen bed and a small but well organized bathroom. Great housekeeping with everything clean; crisp linens and plenty of towels, etc.

FRESHWATER RESPONSE:

Ray we love our repeat guests!  Thanks for this great review and we'll look for you again next year!

Eagle Harbor - My Happy Place
I absolutely love Eagle Harbor and the Schoolhouse Cottage was a wonderful little cottage to stay in while there. You can't beat the fantastic view from the porch and it's perfect location near the lighthouse. It was clean and had all that you need for a comfortable stay. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. Can't wait to go back!

FRESHWATER RESPONSE:

We love that Eagle Harbor School House Cottage is your happy place!  The lighthouses in MI are so special, and being as close as you are from the School House makes staying there even more memorable.

adorable cottage steps away from the beach and sunset views and a short drive from great sights
This cottage was exactly what we were looking for on a recent trip for just my wife and I. It is a short drive from Copper Harbor, Ft. Wilkins, Brockaway Mountain and more. Each night we walked 300 yards to the viewing platform by the lighthouse to watch the sun set over Lake Superior - awesome! Without a doubt we'd stay here again.

 FRESHWATER RESPONSE:

Stephen, aren't lighthouses the best!  Lake Superior has it's own magic, and then you add a lighthouse and a sunset and words cannot describe its magnificence.  We are so glad that you liked the Schoolhouse Cottage, and we'll be even happier to see you again.  Remember that returning guests get a 10% discount.

The booking was easy. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. Attention to detail to make a guests experience comfortable was best. The location was fabulous. It felt like home. Owners were great.

FRESHWATER RESPONSE:

We are really happy that you enjoyed your time at  Eagle Harbor- Schoolhouse Cottage.  It's such a cool place.  When a guest says it felt like home, we know we have succeeded, so thank you for that.  We hope to see you again in the future!
